Speaking on the occasion, Deepika Warrier (pictured, left), marketing director, PepsiCo (Frito-Lay India division) said, "Considering the diversity of tastes in our country, the campaign surely will be exciting, engaging millions of Indians to come and express their individuality, tastes and choices. Personally, I am keen to see what interesting and innovative flavour ideas India will give us."
 
The winners will be selected by a panel of judges headed by celebrity chef Aditya Bal, Anuja Chauhan, ECD and VP, JWT and Dr. TSR Murali, director, R&D, PepsiCo India. 
 
The TVC for the campaign features Lay's brand ambassador Saif  Ali Khan (pictured, right).

The commercial begins with Saif getting himself a tattoo on his forearm. When he sees the final tattoo, he realises that the tattoo artist has tattooed 'kareepatta' (curry leaves) on his arm, which is the former's favourite flavour. Indignantly, he storms out of the place with a pack of lays, when he encounters a man with bizarre red and green tattoo over his face, and says 'tomato chutney'. Similarly, a girl with raw mangoes tattooed all over her says 'Kacchi Ambi'. In the end, Saif tells all the people to tell Lay's about their favourite flavour, thus informing them about the campaign.
